Charles Library Videos & DVDs

The general Video and DVD collection at Charles Library is located in the BookBot retrieval system.  Anyone with a Temple ID can borrow videos and DVDs with a BookBot location for seven days. Portable DVD players and USB plug-n-play DVD drives for use with laptops are also available for loan. Videos may be viewed at the CLA Ed-Tech Center on the ground floor of Anderson Hall.

To request one of these titles for checkout, login to the "My Library Account" and click the "Request" button located above the call number.  Depending on request volume, BookBot requests may take 20-30 minutes to fulfill.  To reduce wait time, we recommend that you place requests prior to your trip to the library.

Videos and DVDs with a location of Charles Library Media Reserves are currently being used by a class and, as a result, can only be checked out for 4 hours and viewed in-house.  These items, along with USB plug-n-play DVD drives for use with laptops, are located at the Charles Library One Stop Assistance Desk.  We will allow the reserving faculty and TAs longer check-outs of reserve films when needed for in-class use.

CLA Ed Tech Center Videos & DVDs

The College of Liberal Arts Educational Technology Center collection, located in AL-21 Anderson Hall, is a teaching resource for faculty and TAs.  Faculty are allowed to check out video, audio, and slide resources.  Students are not permitted to check out materials, but may view visual materials related to their coursework in selected study spaces at the Center.
